4th Annual Biopharmaceutical Case Competition

On Friday, November 20, the 4th Annual Biopharmaceutical Case Competition took place at Rutgers Business School, Newark. The event was sponsored by the Rutgers Pharmaceutical Management Program and teams from nine different schools competed in the case competition. Students spent a week preparing a biosimilar defense plan for the drug Humira, and then presented their strategies to judges from gold level sponsoring companies Bayer, Sanofi, Novo Nordisk, Herspiegel Consulting and Campbell Alliance.  In addition to participating in the case competition, students were able to attend a panel discussion, moderated by Dean Sharon Lydon, about careers in the Pharmaceutical Industry. The event concluded with a cocktail session where students, guests and sponsors were able to network and celebrate the competition.

The event was extra special for Rutgers Business School as the Rutgers Team composed of Priya Kar, James Ma, Irene Mac, Kinshuk Saxena and Aneesh Vase placed 2nd!!!! 

The team also learned a lot from the experience and team member Irene Mac states "Participating in the case competition was a great experience. It made me realize how much I have learned as a second year MBA student, especially from the pharmaceutical management curriculum. Because of how current and applicable the subject matter of the case was, I will be able to use the strategies we developed in my future endeavors working in the pharmaceutical industry.

Congrats to the Rutgers team and all the other participating teams:
